Death piano, the piano that eats

Nobuhiko Obayashi's 1977 film Hausu is one of the most unique horror films I've ever seen, and the girl getting eaten by a grand piano is just part of it. Obayashi takes the manic feel-good vibe of an early seventies Saturday morning cartoon and hitches it to one of the most feverish cinematic bad trips imaginable, providing an experience that, whether you love it or hate it, won't easily be forgotten. For my part, I'm going to step out on a limb and say that I consider it a masterpiece. A masterpiece, I tell you! To read my full review, head on over to Teleport City.
